Daily Prayer - 2013-01-26

Presence

Dear Lord as I come to you today
Fill my heart and my whole being
with the wonder of Your presence

Freedom

Lord you gave me life and the gift of freedom.
Through Your love I exist in this world.
May I never take the gift of life for granted.
May I always respect the right to life of others.

Consciousness

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the cares of this world.
At times like these may I be aware
of the comfort of your Presence,
Your infinite love for me.

The Word of God

Mark 3:20-21

Then Jesus went home; and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat. When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, "He has gone out of his mind."

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • The intensity or passion with which Jesus lived and served people shocked his family and led them to say, “He has gone out of his mind”.
  • You might like to spend time in prayer with Jesus, reflecting about how passionate he is about your life, about appreciating who you are for him, and about realising his dream for you. Talk to him about this and tell him how it both excites you but also how it alarms you, like it did his own family.

Conversation

What is stirring in me as I pray?
Am I consoled, troubled, left cold?
I imagine Jesus himself standing or sitting at my side and share my feelings with him.

Conclusion

I thank God for these few moments we have spent alone together and for any insights I may have been given concerning the text.

Amen

If you appreciated the daily prayer or have any suggestions or insights we will be glad to hear from you.
